Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge

I’ve only ever used makeup brushes to apply my base makeup and turned my nose up at any type of beauty blender or makeup sponge. I just thought they were totally overrated and I never wanted to try them. What a snob ay? A couple of months back I randomly decided to just try it and see what I thought.

In a nutshell, I bought the Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge  back at the end of May and I haven’t used anything else since, all base makeup brushes have gone completely untouched. I love this little sponge, it’s the best £5.99 I have ever spent. It blends any makeup in seamlessly and creates such a natural looking finish. Some of the product gets absorbed into the sponge leading to a lighter more natural finish which I love. If I want more coverage, I just build up the layers and it never appears caky. If my skin is feeling a little dry I just apply some MAC Fix+ to dampen the sponge and then apply my makeup like normal, this hydrates the skin a little. I’ve written about this little beauty before and the comments were a bit hit and miss as some people got on with it, others didn’t but I absolutely love it and I can’t see myself using a brush again, at least for a while.

It says to wash the sponge every three uses and replace it every three months. I bought a new one the other day which means I repurchased after 4 months but I have really kept on top of cleaning it throughly every third use to keep the sponge clean. £5.99 every three months is such a small price to pay for such a fabulous product, I honestly can’t rave about this enough. Who thought anyone could get this excited over a sponge?
